Arsenal swallow humble pie after Richards deal

Posted by

Arsenal are reportedly in a state of shock and disdain after Micah Richards signed a new contract with his club Manchester City last week. The Gunners were believed to be lining up another bid for the 19-year old full England international this summer but now have to look elsewhere for players to strengthen their backline.

Richards says that he is happy to have signed a new contract with City and the club too are relieved that their most prized asset has tied himself to a long term deal. Of course this means that City wouldn’t get the £15 million that Arsene Wenger would have paid them for Richards in the summer but they wouldn’t mind.
